The Last Olympian
The Last Olympian - Rick Riordan

Overall this was a satisfying end to the series. There's so much action, and it's so good. The series isn't perfect by any means, but it was definitely worth the reread.

 

The rest of this post is just a list of rambling notes/questions/observations so it's all going under a cut.

 

Potential spoilers for all Percy Jackson books from TheLightning Thief to The Last Olympian here.

Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian
The Last Olympian - Rick Riordan

Super quick "review" for a book that took me way too long to get through (no fault of the book's, I assure you). A mostly satisfying end to an entertaining series. Perhaps I shouldn’t call it the end, though, as the last chapter sets up the sequel series. Percy’s a nice guy, but I’m a little tired of hanging out with him. Just in case he’s in Heroes of Olympus, I think I’d better take a break before diving in.

"And I know some of you might be thinking: aren't all demigods related on the godly side, and doesn't that make dating gross? But the thing is, the godly side of your family doesn't count genetically speaking, since gods don't have DNA. A demigod would never think about dating someone who had the same godly parent. Like two kids from Athena cabin? No way. But a daughter of Aphrodite and a son of Hephaestus? They're not related. So it's no problem."

 

NICE TRY, RIORDAN. BUT IT'S TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE.

 

Behold! My unconvinced face:

I haven't had much reading time lately, and yet I still feel compelled to interrupt what little time I do have to whine about how all these demigods pairing off in romantic relationships gives me the ickies.

 

Charles Beckendorf, son of Hephaestus, is dating Silena Beauregard, daughter of Aphrodite. Hephaestus is Aphrodite's half-brother, so these kids are already some sort of cousins, but that's not all. Hephaestus is also Aphrodite's husband, so technically these kids are also step-siblings.

 

You guuuuuuuuuys!!!

The Last Olympian - Rick Riordan

I probably enjoyed this one just as much as the others.

 

I like Rachel's fate. I like the fate-themed twist at the end. I like the promise the gods made at the end.

 

I thought it was weird how they handled the spy situation. Every once and a while they'd be like, "Well, this sucks. We have a spy." "Oh, gee. The spy must have revealed our secret to our enemies. Bummer." "Gosh darnit, that spy." But they never seemed interested in figuring out who the spy was, nor did they try to.

 

And don't think i've forgotten about the use of Hercules/Heracles. If i ever meet Rick Riordan, i'm going to have to ask him about that.
